I have a 2017 320d 190bhp, since putting in my tuning box around 3 weeks ago it has changed the way car drives, like seriously it’s amazing.
I have not put the car on the rolling road but on the highest map the car should be putting out 224bhp and it certainly feels that way.
Throttle response is excellent I have a gts black box
And I invested the extra 50 GBP For the Bluetooth app as I previously had a blue spark in my old bmw and I had to keep popping the hood to change maps.(which was very annoying)
I bought the tuning box mainly for the higher output map and when I’m not on the higher map I just put it into eco. Admittedly the app does need some work it can sometimes be slow in connecting to the box but once connected it’s great! If you do decide you want to floor it just pick up your phone(whilst in a safe place ofcourse) and click race then boom you are away.
The customer service for me was second to none I bought the box just before Black Friday (stupidly) and then recommended it to a friend who got it £100 cheaper. I was a bit annoyed as I recommended it! Messaged customer service through their Facebook page, I got a refund of £100 through my paypal account which was amazing.
I bought from racechip in Germany, I have seen some bad reviews regarding other country sellers but what I got from them in Germany was great!
Very happy customer

Secured a purchase with one of racechip Romania reseller and subsequently my order was cancelled due to transport damages whilst shipping to me. Emailed RaceChip Germany about the bad services of the reseller and was asked to get it from my local reseller who does not bring in the RaceChip S (lower end range). Emailed again to RaceChip Germany their reply was they cannot assist me further. Very bad and poor customer services and this company has no core values in business. I will shop elsewhere.

Bought the S model to try it out on my 2011 BMW 535i. First month and a half the product was great. I seen good performance and gas mileage actually went up by 2.3 mpg. After the month and a half i drove to the convenient store and shut my car off with no problems all day. I come back out to start the car and the car would not start. Screen said fuel supply drive train non functional. $895 later i find out my chip burnt out my sensor to the fuel injectors. Will never ever by this junk again. And yes i installed this product correctly as i never had the problem for the first month and a half.

RaceChip - 2016 Range Rover Evoque - Emailed Customer service to locate exact unit needed as DropDown menus had none. Excellent response time and informative. Delivery was fast and instructions exact unit were emailed separately. Easy 20 Min Install and unit performs as adverised. Gained approx 2L/100km based on normal driving conditions.

Brilliant. It's given my throttle the extra punch it needed.
Fitted this to a 2001 BMW 330Ci (E46). It's electronic throttle and I've always found it a little laggy. I was sceptical about fitting the RaceChip unit but I'm glad I took the risk.
Installation was easy (although the sticky pads are not sticky at all), and the unit and accessories are well made and solid.
Performance has been great. Genuinely, the rev range and layout feels better, particularly in the higher settings. I'm a real E46 nerd, and can honestly say that this unit has added great responsiveness to the throttle. S and S+ mode are good for daily driving. R and R+ mode aren't comfortable when in start/stop traffic, but on a clear and open road it's fantastic.
This installation has been a nice surprise. It's important to understand that this doesn't add power, or a remap, but it does adjust the sensitivity of your throttle, more so than just planting your foot could ever manage. It puts down the power a lot quicker . Ultimately, it's a sport button for your car. Would definitely recommend.

I have a golf with the 1.9 pd130 engine. I have the basic race chip and is set to one jumper off of maximum.
The car is a lot more responsive with better fuel economy.
I have had it installed a while so this is a genuine review for reliability too. I noticed someone with the same vehicle has given it a low review. All I can say is it has worked great for me.

So please believe me when I say, “I’m the biggest sceptic there is”. But RaceChip proved me wrong.
I have a 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster. Which with out help is a pretty fast car. Well, I installed the RaceChip the other day and although the Install took an hour, due to the complete covered mid - engine, the time was well worth it. The car feels like I bought a new one. It launches like the 2015 Porsche turbo I once drove. If you’re on the fence about buying a Race chip, don’t be. This one is a brainer. BUY IT!
Review by Shawuana4 months ago
I bought the cheapest RaceChip for my SEAT Leon Fr and keeping it on the middle 3 setting I was getting better MPG and better performance. But after about a month, the car would occasionally hiccup and on one occasion, on the motorway, a dashboard warning came on and the car went into limp mode. When I got home, I turned off the engine, turned it back on again and it was running fine – no warning lights.
So I knocked the setting down to 2 and then 1 and even though it gave me miles of OK driving, it would still hiccup occasionally. During this time I was emailing customer service who have been absolutely superb throughout. Then, on setting 1, it started going into limp mode almost continually and even did so again on the motorway, so, on the motorway hard shoulder I turned it to 0 to get back OK.
I then contacted customer service who suggested I return it for a re-program. They supplied the return postage label and I got it back a week later. Unfortunately, I then got worse MPG on all of the settings. So I contacted customer service again, just to advise them of the history of operation – I did not request or expect a refund – in my mind I had written the cost off to experience. However, completely unprompted, they said if I returned it they would give me a full refund. They again sent a label and issued the refund within a week.
That is why I give 4 stars – because their customer service has been superb – just a shame that the chip didn’t work perfectly with my car.

Bought a tuning box for my vw caddy. Driving down the motorway the throttle became totally unresponsive really dangerous situation at 70mph. I sent the box back I had no reply no email to say they had received the box. Then a new one was sent out I wanted a refund but was never offered one. I think this fault is totally unacceptable and dangerous. I'm an electrical engineer by trade. The customer service is none existent and the language barrier is huge.

Fiat 500 twinair
Bought the basic S chip for better fuel economy
I usually get 56-57 mpg, after installing racechip average mpg over 2,000+ miles daily commute went down to 50.7.
Driving style exactly the same.
It didn't really make the performance any different either.
These things should be for performance vehicles only, because it's just not worth it on a small engine vehicle.
£100 to make my car use more petrol.
What an absolute bargain??????
I can't even sell it on as I'd feel like I would be cheating a fellow human.

Who ever thinks this item is any good to Purchase TRUST ME!!!! SAVE YOUR MONEY.
I PURCHASED THE GTS black for my Maserati. And after I installed it, it seemed to work fine, however, after some time. My car was NOT performing well.
I took my car back to the manufacturer and they explained to me, that my Cars Turbo Boost controller was under boosting because of the chip.
So we removed the Chip, and all of a sudden. My car had returned back to Normal..
So giving the Race Chip some doubt. I contacted them, I explained the situation to them.
And they explained that they had sent out the WRONG hardware as well as incorrect software.
But Guess What!!!!!! They were NOT willing to do anything about it.
As a matter of fact, they told me to pay an extra 130 Euro to send it back each way. So they cam fix the problem.
After I supposedly spoke to the Tech support as well as they put me.through one of their re-sellers.
In which frankly did NOT care.
He explained that they are not here to help, and Only to take orders he then went on to saying
I frankly don't care. And do what ever you like.
So I am.sure that person knows who he is, because he even went as far as to report my review and try to have it removed. ( Which forced me) into editing the review. So If you are reading this, I am now doing what ever I like.
And this will not STOP here. I will ensure no body gets Scammed from your rubbish components.
